Nip-tuck for Peugeot 207

2009-06-30 08:50
The stylish Peugeot 207 pulls in for a facelift shortly, gaining a few styling tweaks and more efficient engines.

Given the 207's winning aesthetic, the changes, to the front end in particular, are minor.

The front now appears softer with more body coloured and chrome detailing used throughout. The biggest change at the rear is the use of LEDs inserts on the hatchback and CC models.

Inside the cabin, the changes extend to new trim and upholstery, while the manufacturer claims the new instrument panel is more "modern" with "visual appeal".

Furthermore, as far as technical changes go, Peugeot's engineers were tasked with further reducing fuel consumption and emissions and the 207 will see the gradual introduction of engines meeting the Euro5 emission standards.

For manual gearboxes, a gear change indicator is also being introduced to encourage more efficient driving.

Other changes include one-touch operation for the indicators and driver's electric window, and an audio system with USB and Bluetooth.
